Projects-based BIM OpenBuildings Designer Training

In the OpenBuildings BIM training course, learners will be using the OpenBuildings Designer software to perform Architectural and Structural modelling of buildings in 3D BIM.

Course Overview

BIM OpenBuildings will be introduced to the Open Building Designer User Interface, and learn the basic operating functions and tools (e.g. Elements/Families, Settings, Views) on a step-by-step basis. Trainees will also explore the wide array of fundamental modelling features used to model Mechanical & Electrical, and Structural Elements. They will make use of computational BIM Generative Component (GC) interface of AECOsim to automate placement of sleepers and BIM object cells. Trainees will practice modeling realistic infrastructure projects during the course, and will be given opportunities to clarify doubts at the Guided Practical Sessions led by our Professional BIM Trainer. A Certificate of Completion will be issued to each Trainee at the end of the course.
